The Department of Computer Information Systems (CIS) at King Abdullah II School for Information Technology, The University of Jordan was established in 2000.

King Abdullah the II School for Information Technology (KASIT) was established in the summer of 2000 and the Computer Information Systems (CIS) department was in the very heart of the new faculty along with the Computer Science (CS) and the Business Information Systems (BIS) departments.

The purpose of the CIS department has always been to develop the student’s abilities to meet the regional, national and international needs for computing and system development. In order to meet the need for the newly developed technology-based industries, students are provided with knowledge, cognitive, analytical and designing and practical and transferable computing skills. Students are also provided with a foundation that prepares them to continue learning after graduation. They aspire to maintain a very good relationship with the market through consultancy and creativity in information and computer developments and through offering solutions in a global economic and cultural entertainment.

The CIS programmes have been established based on the following reasons:

  • The world –in all of its aspects- is characterized by rapid change, increasing globalization and growing complexity in terms of its use of Information and Communication Technology (ICT)
  • There are needs for developed information and supported services on the use of ICT at regional, national, and international levels as the need for professionals in computing and system development increases.
  • There are crucial needs for expert technicians and professionals in the fields of computing, information and communication technology in Jordan and the neighboring countries.
